I suggest you ...

Remove the "your response is anonymous" language at the top of the form

We should have the option to decide if we want to show the "your response is anonymous" language at the top of the form rather than it being hard coded into the form.

        I agree! You should be able to turn this on or off if you want to include it on your form.

        please.... Each time I show it to a client this is the first request ! we use it for customer registration and ask for name and email. totally opposite from anonymous!!!!

        remove the anonymous from top of the form urgently - this is a simple step to develop the form for external users

      • Matt Allington commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Very confusing. The first question I am asking people externally is "what is your name". This question appears immediately below "Your response is anonymous". Very confusing.

        Please don't put ANY automatic text on the form that the user cannot edit.

        Has this been sorted? Finding this 'Your response is anonymous.' very annoying. We are sending this out to people outside of our organisation and it is to gather people's information so not anonymous. Need the option to get rid of this/edit the text.

        same as others, we use the "anyone with a link" but then request their information so it's not anonymous. Please provide a way to remove this notice as it's confusing and contradictory to how this is used.

        The words is dsicarded and hesitatting to ask for answerer.
        Please remove the words.

        Text "Your answer is anonymous" when we still ask names and contact details from people outside our organisation. Some prefer using google forms for forms that go out from organisation :(

      • R. Philips commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We need customers to enter a Unique ID when they fill out the form; we cannot use Microsoft Forms in these circumstances. Also, what about forms being filled out in languages other than English?

        Any update on this please? How many votes does it take to get a response? Non-communication is difficult to deal with.

        How is it anonymous when I have a 'name' field as my first question? Please make this notice optional or allow us to enter an alternative message.
